>> interestingly, you don't look

at the financial system. where would you put your money? home ownership comes up as number one as a means of building wealth. other people talk about more hands-on ownership up to and including gold. the idea that something that is not paper but has a physical asset could be much more important than what they see as a shakier market. interestingly, when we ask americans do you think the u.s. economy is currently in a recession or not, 53% believe that we are still in a recession. four to one percent believe the recession is passed. there are some ideological cuts -- republicanste by a margin of 56 to 40% think we are still in a recession. that pushes against the other finding of who is optimistic.
